On-Demand Video: Organist Cameron Carpenter
Live in The Greene Space
Monday, April 02, 2012
On Friday, April 20 at 7 pm, composer-organist and YouTube sensation Cameron Carpenter joined host Terrance McKnight for a kaleidoscopic tour through the organ repertoire, from legendary works by Johann Sebastian Bach to reworkings of Charles Ives and Percy Grainger to Carpenter's original compositions and arrangements of singer-songwriters Leonard Cohen and Rufus Wainwright.
In his exclusive New York recital this season, Carpenter provides a high-octane embarrassment of riches, all performed on a new cutting-edge digital organ by a commanding musician dubbed a "force of nature" by Alex Ross of The New Yorker and an "ambitious radical who plays with unrelenting scope, vigor and imagination" by The Advocate.
A highlights video from The Greene Space is below, followed by the archival video of the event.
